Howdy, again!

Thanks for ALL the input (lots and lots).

The majority says stay with relational database
terminology (rows and columns). I think I will
do this with ALOT of explanation for our readers.

One more question--the single block formed by
an intersection of a row and a column, in a Word
or Frame table this is called a cell. However, the
programmers tell me you call both this single block
and the column a "column". That, I know, will not
fly with my readers.

Any suggestions?

Thanks again for the help.
